Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and their villain combatants are heading to Australia.

Warner Bros, the Hollywood studio behind DC Comics' superhero films, announced on Thursday that Sydney will be the first city to host the worldwide tour of The Art of the Brick: DC Comics exhibition.

Created by artist Nathan Sawaya, the contemporary exhibition will open at the Powerhouse Museum on November 21 and involve large-scale sculptures of DC Comics' 80-year history of superheroes and villains made out of millions of Lego bricks.

The tour was announced at Comic-Con, the massive comic book, anime and science-fiction convention underway in San Diego.

Fans at Comic-Con were given a behind-the-scenes glimpse at some of the 100-plus sculptures to be showcased in Sydney, including interpretations of Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman.

Sawaya will also create a new Lego Batmobile for the Sydney exhibition.

'We are thrilled to launch The Art of the Brick: DC Comics at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia, continuing our history of working with premier cultural institutions as part of our successful touring exhibition business,' Brad Globe, president of Warner Bros consumer products, said.

'We know fans in Australia and around the world will enjoy Nathan's artistic interpretations of DC Comics' famous superheroes, super villains and more as they come to life through Lego bricks.'

Sawaya is excited to bring his work to Sydney.

'The Powerhouse Museum is a legendary venue and the ideal location to kick off the global tour,' Sawaya said.

'Fans will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with their favourite Super Heroes and Super-Villains in an immersive environment customised for the art.'
